Matoe's Office, ) 
Chicago, May 5, 1881. ) 

Gentlemen of the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

It is required by the charter and expected of 
the Mayor that at the close of the municipal year 
he shall present to the City Council "informa- 
tion relative to the affairs of the city, and shall 
recommend for their consideration such meas- 
ures as he may deem expedient." The various 
departments of the city are likewise required to 
submit annual statements, and a message of the

liasi. 



Mayor can. therefore, tl«> littl. else than sninmar- 

ize their reports, draw comparisons between 
various periods to better illustrate the progress 
thathas been effected, and preeenl snggebtions 

as lo what improvements tor the future can be 
promoted bj your honorable body. The reports 
ot the various departments for the past year are 
full and complete, and t will only be uecsssary 

on this nOCaaiOTJ to briefly refer to them. 

The tin inces ol' the city an- of tic h.v-l corisid- 
eratioD, as they are of the utmost importance to 
the- mauagi ticnl ol the municipality and the 
progress of the city; and whatever may be charged 
hv a partisan press to the contrary, I fee] war- 
ranted hythe facts in stating that the public 
moneys have been judiciously, wisely and econ- 
omically expended. The greatest care and the • 
utmost scrutiny have been exercised in seeing 
that the greatest amount of good and substantial 
work lias been accomplished for the public by 
the least outlay of money consistent with the 
highest regard for the varied interests to be sub- 
served and for the general welfare. Too growth 
of this city has been unprecedented in the annals 
of municipalities, and no other city on the con- 
tinent is so peculiarly hampered bylaws relating 
to taxation and indebtedness as Chicago. The 
imposition of obstacles to check and prevent ex- 
travagance; waste, recklessness and dishonesty, 
is highly commendable, for the earlier experien- 
ces of all cities go to show that one or the other 
of these features has prevailed, to the great mjury 
of the tax payer and the detriment of a city: but 
there certainly should exist laws which, while 
thev protect the tax payers, should give a city 
like Chicago the power to secure for itself aopro- 
propriatious adequate to the continued growth 
and increased needs of the city. As to how this 
eud could be accomplished there exist differences 
of opinion— some holding that Chicago should 
constitute one taxing district, under one assessor, 
instead of three, as at present, and others con- 
tending that the laws are ample enough were only 
supervisors appointed such as contemplated by 
the countv commissioners; but just what sort of 
a law would cover the case to a nicety is difficult 
to determine. Certainly the system now m oper- 
ation does not produce satisfactory results. The 
assessments do not keep pace with the popula- 
tion, and while it may not precisely present the 
exact ^tatu^ of affairs, yet it may be stated so as 
to more nearlv approximate to the truth, that 
while our population has increased almost in a 
geometrical proportion, the assessments have 
increased only in an arithmetical proportion. 
The Comptroller, in his annual reoort to your 
body, has presented a tabulated statement, show- 
in^the assessments of the city since 1872 down 
to the present time, and as I do not propose to 
wearv you by a long array of figures, 1 can best 
illustrate the defective system of assessments by 
quoting one of his concluding observations on 
the table presented by him. He says: 

" It will thus be seen, from the foregoing, that 
in May 1*72. but a few months after the lire of 
1871, and after two hundred millions' worth of 
monertv had been destroyed by the conflagration, 
valuations readied the sum of $284iQ0p.<m Ten 
years thereafter, however, with a doubled popu- 
lation (and consequent increase of values) and 
a replacement of property destroyed largely more 
valuable than that burned, valuations fell to tne 
insignificant sum of $ri5.3.)S.537, reaching the 
lowest limits in lsSO— sll7.133.rj43. 

Before the session of the Legislature next win- 
ter I trust vour honorable body may be able to 
dev^-eand suggest some new plan that will reach 
and remedy the difficulties under which we now 
labor, and 'that thereafter the city may be m a 
position to secure what is needed to make im- 
provements absolutely required by a city fast 
approaching to a population of a million. 

In a prior message to the Council I pointed out 
the necessity of a great, growing and prosperous 
city like this to anticipate future requirements. 



by the construction of works of an enlarged and 
permanent oharacter. This can only be done by 

the issuance of bonds, so guarded by provis- 
ions of law as to prevent any recklessness or dis- 
honesty, and the history of all cities Bhows that 
it has only been in tin- manner that great Im- 
provements could be carri d out, so a* to not 
only meel the wants of a present tune, but future 
possibilities and growth. Great undertakings, 
like the Suez canal, the Panama canal, the Pacific 
railroads and like enterprises, have been pro- 
jected and carried out long before, in anticipa- 
tion of future demands and requirement.-, and 
had it not been for pledging future resources by 
i -suing bond- for present fulfillment of vast pro- 
jects, all these wonderful works would still 
remain mere specula'. ions and undeveloped, in 
the womb of time. Now that Chicago is d « fined 
bevond a peradventuie of doubt, to attain in 
tune a population of 2,000,OUO, 1,000,000 of it in 
the course of yeats not v«ry remote the efforts 
of the present should be to build according to 
the needs of so large a population, and what 
money may be required to that end should be 
secured largely by pledging the faith and credit 
of that population which will enjoy and profit by 
all permanent improvements of a public charac- 
ter. It certainly would be too much to ask the 
present population to reach down into its pockets 
for all the necessary means to construct the 
works the city should have, in addition to what 
taxes it may pay for the present: but by a law 
authorizing the issuance of bonds the amount to 
be paid by the future would be a mere bagatelle, 
spread as the payments would be over a series of 
years. Had the city not anticipated the wants of 
the people in the matter of water works, the 
supply of water at the present time would have 
been inadequate and wholly unsatisfactory, and 
I would therefore commend to your careful con- 
sideration the maturing of some law. to be pro- 
posed for adoption by the people of the State, as 
an amendment to the present constitution of the 
State, so as to permit the city to itsue bonds for 
the construction of various works already needed 
by the present and absolutely required by the 
future. The agitation of tins question will dem- 
onstrate the necessity of such a plan, and when 
fully understood, the people will gladly and will- 
ingly approve of it. 

The finances of the city, as I have already 
stated, have been managed with prudence and 
economy, and the year safely passed without any 
resort to methods of the old "scrip days 1 ' pre- 
ceding 1879. The receipts last year were: From 
saloon licenses, s3s5.'U8.S2, of which $20,000 was 
set aside, under the State law, for the Washing- 
tonian home, an increase over the preceding year 
of $189,702.45, due to the raising ol! license fees 
from s.V> to S103: from licenses other than sal- 
oons. s250.23Ji.22. an increase of §85,258.08, and 
from the two per cent, tax levy si.rWt.Bld.OS, an 
increase of .sl.">7. 439.44. Taking as a basis the 
amornt of money already paid in for salocn lic- 
enses for the four months expiring on August 7 
next, the probability is that during the municipal 
year of 1SS4-5 the receipts from this source will 
reach fully .\ 1,200,000: but had the clamors of a 
partisan press been heeded prior to July 1. 1883, 
a sum far less than that would only have been 
secured. 

The time for changing from a low license to a 
high license was exceedingly short, and the saloon 
keepers were unprepared for it. as they expected 
up to the last moment, that the so-called " Har- 
per ;.ct " would fail of passage in the legislature, 
and had not your honorable body exercised its, 
lawful prerogatives before the act took effect, 
bv changing the municipal year so as to permit 
j the issuance of licenses on a basis of J103 before 
the date fixed by the new law. the consequences 
1 would have been that on July 1. the time when 
; the old municipal license year expired, many 
j saloon keepers would have been obliged to quit 
i business, as they would have been unable to raise

within the time $500, and financially ruined, as 
their stock in trade and other personal property 
would have remained on their hands unsalable 
and unprofitable.^ But in the payment of $103 
license fee, the city derived as great an income 
as though a ff 150 fee had been collected for a 
whole year, for the licenses were issued for a 
period of nine months, and not a full year, as 
some have imagined. Had resort been made to 
enforce upon the saloon keepers the Harper bill 
by your body, the effeet would ht.y ; been deplor- 
able. There was an almost general sentiment 
that the effect of the law in this city was harsh 
and extreme. Those trafficking in liquor felt 
themselves oppressed unfairly, and were resolved 
to resist it to the utmost in their power. If the 
Council had failed to pass the ordinance of June 
18, 1883, there would have been a concerted resis- 
tance to the Harper law, prosecutions would 
have been innumerable; juries sympathizing 
with the offenders; there would have been that 
worst of all things in a civilized society— open 
violations of the law and merger enforcements, 
thus bringing the law into disrepute. An open 
defiance of law in any direction has a demoral- 
izing effect upon the community. The general 
observance of the rights of people and the sanc- 
tity of law is witnessed by the non-molestation 
of the frail glass that stands between the occu- 
pant of a domicile, a store, or a public building 
and the people outside, and of the tiny key that 
can be easily duplicated to lock or unlock the 
habitations of man. When once people witness 
the disregard of any law, there grows a general 
contempt of all law and a feeling that if it can 
be easily set aside in one case, there are means of 
setting it aside in other cases. Our laws are not 
like the laws of Draco,— written in blood, — but 
are written in the hearts of our people, and any- 
thing tending to diminish respect of a people in 
their own laws is subversive of all good govern- 
ment. If laws are enacted through passion or in 
the heat of the moment, people should bow sub- 
missively and wait the proper time tor their 
repeal through the forms of law and in the man- 
ner prescribed by the fundamental law of the 
land. 

But the timely intervention of this Council 
prevented any clashing of factions and any at- 
tempt at a general disregard of the Harper act. 
For this action of yours the partisan newspapers 
branded you as law-breakers and nullifiers of the 
law, but the vindication of your course finally 
came from the highest judicial tribui.al in the 
State, the Supreme Court, which has r.mply sus- 
tained the legality and constitutionality of your 
act. Tiie Harper act was leveled particularly at 
Chicago, and no thought was given as to tiie 
hardships that would ensue from the sudden 
deprivation of a man's business. Had ample 
time been given the rights of saloon keepers 
would have been better regarded, but the sud- 
denness of the proposed change was an injustice 
which only extreme temperance fanatics could 
approve. In a temporance speech some time ago 
at Birmingham, in England, the Hon. John 
Bright, the great apostle of temperance, as well 
as of free trade, gave utterance to these words: 
"If a trade in the country is permitted bylaw, 
that trade has a right to be defended by law. The 
trade of the licensed victualers, of the sellers of 
alcoholic drinks, is a trade that has been permit- 
ed, and I think parliament and the law are not 
justified in inflicting upon that trade unnecessa- 
ry difficulties and unnecessary irritation. Now, 
I think that so long as trade is not condemned 
by parliament it has a right to demand that it 
should not be subjected to passionate and party 
legislation. * * * * la legislating on a mat- 
ter of this kind, violent changes are not necessa- 
ry and are not wise." He deprecated legislation 
that was "violent, unjust, and regardless of the 
haoits and opinions of the people and of a large 
minority." and his remarks are cogent and perti- 
nent as though they had been made with ref er- 



I ence to the Harper legislation, which comes di- 
rectly under the purview of his denuncia- 
I tions. 

j _ Next to the proper management of the finances 
is the judicious expenditure of the public funds, 
and with what means we have had in the Depart- 
ment of Public Works improvements have been 
made wherever practicable. During the year 
there have been laid twenty-two miles of cast- 
iron water-pipes from four to twenty-four inches 
m diameter. There was built in this city a total 
of over fourteen miles of sewer, constructed of 
brick and pipe, and there was also laid 23.72 miles 
of street pavements. Sidewalks were also con- 
structed to the amount of ninety miles. There 
were over 2,000 miles of streets cleaned at a cost 
of $70,000. The amount expended on the new city 
hall during the past year was S'166,815.36. For re- 
pair of bridges and viaducts there was expended 
about $65,000. 

The police, fire and health departments have 
been managed with ability and efficiency, and 
challenge comparison with similar departments 
in other cities. Considering the amount of mon- 
ey at their disposal, the people have reasons to 
compliment them on their Zealand efficiency and 
the excellent work performed by them, and vour 
honorable body will the more fully appreciate 
what has been done for the city by noticing in the 
following table that while the population has in- 
creased rapidly the expenditures have increased 
but slightly, in view of the increased work con- 
sequent upon the growth of the city.

_ Before concluding, I desire to call your atten- 
tion to the advisability of adopting a uniform 
system of designating the thoroughfares of the 
city and numbering the houses. At present con- 
siderable trouble is frequently experienced by 
people living in the city as well as by those who 
are strangers in the city, in reaching the point 
they desire. If they are directed to proceed so 
many blocks in one way and then so many blocks 
in another direction, they are still in a bewildered 
condition on reaching the street they are in 
search of, as to how far they have to go before

reaching a particular number. Now, if your hon- 
orableh^dj would pass au ordinance designating 
all thoroughfares running north and south as av- 
enues." all thoroughfares running east and west 
a- "streets," all thoroughfares a block or less in 
length as -'places,'- all t horoughfares having hou- 
ses over one hundred in number and less than ; five 
hundred as "courts," an 1 all thoroughfares diagj 
onally crossing other streets, etc., as "roads and 
then fix one hundred numbers for each block, 
the wayfarer though lost could readily pick his 
way out and expeditiously find his locality. B6- 
sid'es being an aid to strangers, the system would 
urove a great convenience to our own people, 
and, without elaborating upon its merits, which 
will be readily seen and appreciated, 1 trust your 
honorable body will take this matter under con- 
sideration and pass at an early day an ordinance 
that will cover it and bring about the desirable 

C Inclosing the old Council and inaugurating the

courtesies and favors at your hands during t ie 
past year, and ask the kind indulgences of the 
new for the coming year.

His Honor the Mayor submitted the following 
veto message: 

Mayor s Office, / 
Chicago. May 5, 1884. ) 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen: I herewith return, without my 
approval, an ordinance concerning dogs, passed 
April 28, 1881. .,,.„,.- 

The ordinance is clearly iRegal m its provis- 
ion for the killing of all dogs running at large, 
contrarv to the provisions of the ordinance. The 
law recognizes property in dogs, and it is well 
known to you that such animals are often of con- 
siderable pecuniary value. But the ordinance 
makes no distinction between worthL-ss curs and 

, valuable dogs. and. under the decisions of the 
courts, the owner could recover damages for the 
loss sustained. 
While the city might escape liability on the 

' ground that it had no power to pass the ordin- 
ance it would net be right to make it the duty of 
our police to do that for which they could be

mulcted in the courts. The ordinance is also un- 
fair to the owner of a dog, in that such a dog 
may be slain in case it escapes, by chance or ac- 
cident, from the custody of the master; and no 
opportunity is afforded to the owner to reclaim 
the dog upon payment of a proper fee. 

The ordinance is objectionable, for, in provid- 
ing for the muzzling of dogs with leather muz- 
zles, any muzzle which prevents a dog from 
opening its mouth and lolling its tongue, is in- 
jurious to the animal, as it shuts down the safety 
valve provided by nature when the dog is heated 
or exhausted. The direct tendency of such a 
measure is to make the dog sick, and such sick- 
ness may run into hydrophobia. Moreover, it is 
the experience in this, as in other cities, with 
dogs, that by far the greater portion of those 
which go mad are the pet dogs which are confined 
in the house or are usually kept muzzled and it is 
rare that a dog which is allowed full liberty, 
ever becomes rabid. 

If it be desired to clear the streets of those 
animals, it should be done as in other cities, by a 
system of impounding them, posting proper no- 
tices for the required length of time, and if the 
owners do not take notice and redeem the dogs, 
after such constructive notice, then to have them 
slain by the pound master. 

If the worthless curs which roam the streets 
and are without masters, are to be slain, except 
in due course of law, the same had better be done 
by the officers, in their discretion. 

In that way, the police would have to take the 
responsibility of killing a valuable dog and 
would not have the duty imposed upon them of 
slaying all dogs in the streets, without regard to 
their value or the circumstances under which 
they may have escaped from their owners. 

Car pee H. Harrison,

DEATH OF ALD. M. GAYNOR. 

Aid. Mahony arose and announced the death of 
Aid. M. Gaynor, and offered and moved the 
adoption of the following preamble and reso- 
lutions: 



Whereas, This Council has learned with regret 
and sorrow of the death of our late colleague, 
Aid. M. Gaynor, who has represented in this 
body, for the past two years, the ninth ward, and 
has discharged his duty to his people and to the 
city with zeal, fidelity and ability, and 

Whereas, In his demise this body has lost an 
energetic member, the city an enterprising citi- 
zen, and his friends a warm and true-hearted 
man, a man who was in the prime of life and 
always active in the interest of the public, striv- 
ing, in all public measures, to advance the 
growth, prosperity and material beauty of the 
city, and lending his efforts and influence in 
matters calculated to enhance the reputation of 
the city abroad and make it the great center of 
the Northwest; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Council hereby tender the 
afflicted family of our late colleague our sincere 
and heartfelt sympathy in their sad bereavement 
and their irreparable loss; and be it further 

Resolved, That as a proper mark of respect, 
this Council do attend the funeral in a body, and 
that during the day of the funeral all the depart- 
ments of the city be closed during the entire day, 
and be it further \ 

Resolved, That a committee of three be ap- 
pointed to confer with the family of the de- 
ceased in making arrangements for the funeral, 
and be it further 

Resolved, That these resolutions be spread 
upon the records of this Council, and that a 
copy be forwarded to the family of the deceased.

Aid. IjAWLKK: Mr. President. In seconding 
the motion of the* alderman from tho ninth 
ward, i would aaj thai there is qo doubt but that 
every member of the Council Celt a deep respect 
for hie colleague. I have known the deceased 

and Ins famih For many years; I have known 

him ae trustworthy, industrious in his habits, 
and a t rue and honest advocate of the rights and 
requirements of his con tituents. II" represented 
a large waid. and, after serviny faithfully for two 
years he was returned to the Council. On an 
occasion like this very little can be said by the 

friends of the deceased. His sudden death has 
so taken us l>v surprise that it is difficult to ex- 
press l)v motions or orations, the deep regard 
which we all feel for him, as our emotions will 
not allow us to express ourselves as we would 
like to. During a short space of time three seats 
in the Council nave been decorated in death, and 
we only hope that justice may speedily overtake 
the one who took our colleague so wantonly from 
our midst. To his family we can only feebly ex- 
press our sympathy. 

Aid. Dixon: Mr. President. There are times 
when words fail to express the feelings of the 
soul. It is sad to be called on to meet to pay 
a tribute to the memory of a departed associate. 
The suddenness of this sad event makes it the 
more painful; it lacerates every instinct of 
humanity. It is a true saying that in life we are 
in the midst of death. Cut down in the very prime 
of life and manhood, without a moment's warn- 
ing, bvthe hand of a cold-blooded assassin, I can 
only account for it as the outgrowth of our polit- 
ical svstem. I have known AkL G-aynor from a 
bov— f or over twenty years. I have known him to 
honor and respect him. He was as true to a 
friend as steel: the principles he advocated and 
believed were as constant and as straight as the 
needle to the pole, and when he gave his word to 
do anything you could rest assured that thing 
would be done. I have known him as an obedi- 
ent son. I never knew of a man to honor and 
respect and care for the comfort of his parents 
as he did; was a faithful and loving husband 
and an indulgent father, with a great, generous 
heart to all.. ;r 

He faithfully and honestly represented his 
constituents in this Council as any member of 
this body can hope or expect to do. His constit- 
uents loved him, as was demonstrated by his re- 
election to this body, and no man can be elected 
in this free land of ours except there is merit, in 
him, and that merit was seen and appreciated in : 
the career and actions of our deceased friend. 
This is the third time within the past three 
months that death has paid a visit to this Coun- 
cil. May this last victim that has been snatched 
from our midst appease that solemn messenger. 
Gentlemen, it is sad when we think of that young, 
devoted wife and her two small children, and his 
loving brothers, that weep over his lifeless form 
to-night. He is dead, we will see his face no 
more in that vacant chair, and, as in the nature 
of things, another will occupy that seat and rep- 
resent his constituency in this body, I know the 
resolutions will be unanimously adopted, as they 
should be. 

Aid. Bond: Mr. Chairman. Within the past 
four months we have met on two occasions in 
this council chamber to pay the customary res- 
pect to two of our members, who. in the provid- 
ence of God. by -death were taken from us. This 
evening we are assembled to mourn the loss of 
another member. On the 17th day of March-a 
little more than two months since— Aid. Gaynor 
arose at mv right and announced the death of 
his associate. Aid. Foley. This evening, from 
my right, and from the chair he has occupied for 
two years as member of this Council, his death 



is announced, and his desk is draped in mourn- 
ing, Outside of the council chamber 1 had no 
particular acquaintance with Aid. Gaynor, and 
Leave Li with his personal friends to apeak of him 
as a neighbor and a friend; but as an associate, 
Bitting at my right for over two years, he lias 
treated me with courtesy and respect, and I 
esteemed him as a generous, kind-hearted friend 
to those in need. Aid. Gaynor's death, though 
by the hand of an assassin, reminds each and 
every one of us of the uncertainty of Life; that 
death cometh often in an unexpected moment, 
an hour when we think not. May we so live that 
we may be preserved for that event. 

Aid. Ryan: Mr. President. Again we are 
called upon to mourn the loss of one of our asso- 
ciates. Again the voice of mourning is heard 
and tears of lament are shed, for the hand of the 
assassin has cut short the life of him whom we 
respected as a colleague, and loved as a friend. 
Michael Gaynor is dead; cut down in the prime 
of life and vigor of manhood. Without a mo- 
ment's warning, the hand of the murderer is 
raised and the life of a husband and father is 
taken, that the vile, debased passion of the ac- 
cursed fiend may be satisfied. Oh, cruel wretch, 
thine is the most terrible of crimes, for thou 
hast taken a life which God hath given, and left 
a widow and fatherless children to weep for a 
husband and father. It was my fortune for 
many years to be closely associated with Aid. 
Gaynor, and I can say from my heart that a 
truer, a more noble, a more generous man I 
never knew. He was true to his friends, he was 
charitable to his enemies; he was honest, both in 
business and official life. He felt for his surf er- 
ering fellowman as a brother, and to him it was 
a pleasing duty to give liberally of his means to 
lighten the burden of the needy. We who have 
been associated with him in the City Council 
have learned to prize his many noble qualities, 
the strict integrity of his actions, the plain and 
simple purity of his life, and the many endearing 
attributes he possessed, proclaiming him the 
true type of manly manhood. Called by the sad 
news of his approaching death from a distant 
State, I visited his home last night, in company 
with many of the aldermen, and the sight which 
I there beheld will forever remain vividly de- 
picted in my memory. There, at his bedside, 
were the many friends who had so often shared 
his joys and gladdened his mind by their conver- 
sation; but now they are mournfully silent, for 
their friend is in the agony of death and a sym- 
pathizing and mournful pity is all the relief they 
are able to contribute. There, at his bedside, 
was the wife of his bosom, the dear companion 
of his life. She hangs over the bed of death, 
ministering to. his wants, while her lips are 
parted in prayer, imploring, beseeching God 
that her husband may live. Here is the weeping 
of the lover, the mourning of the wife, and the 
inexpressible anguish of the mother. Around 
his bed are his poor, innocent children, too 
young to comprehend the incalculable loss they 
are about to suffer, nor understanding the cause 
of their mother's grief. 

Ah, cruel assassin, thy deadly aim has taken the 
husband from the wife, she will be a widow be- 
fore the rising of the sun and her children will 
be orphans. 

But we have left the bed of mourning, of suff- 
ering and of pain; we have left the home of 
anguish and grief, and we are here assembled to 
pav the last tribute of respect to our associate 
and to make the fitting and necessary arrange- 
ments for his funeral. I hope the City Council 
will go in a body to his funeral, and that the city- 
authorities will cause the offices of the city gov- 
ernment to be closed on the day of his burial, 
and that every mark of respect which is due to

the Mayor, of persons pardoned from the House

Placed on file. 

His Honor the Mayor presented the following 
veto message: 

Mayor's Office. ? 
Chicago, June 2, 1884. i" 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

1 herewith return, without my approval, the 
ordinance for the opening of the alley lying bet- 
ween North Grreen and North Halsted streets,f rom 



Pratt street south, to east and west alley, passed 
by the City Council on the twenty-third day of 
May 1884, for the reasons as follows: 

The ordinance is improperly drawn, in that it 
says, that the alley shall be "opened and improv- 
ed", which should have confined the act of the 
Council to opening alone, and not to improving 
of the alley. The proceedings for improving an 
alley embraces the paving, grading, etc., whereas 
the ordinance for the opening of an alley is the 
basis for condemnation proceedings and should 
not include any improving whatever, which is 
entirley a different proceeding, and further- 
more, the Department of Public Works -informs 
me that the ordinance is not in proper form, 
and therefore, in my opinion, the ordinance as 
drawn is illegal and void, and I recommend that 
the matter be referred to the Department of 
Public Works to draft a proper and legal ordin- 
ance, and return the same to the Council for 
passage.

REPORTS OF OITY OFFICERS. 

. , Th e Clerk presented the report of His Honor 
the Mayor, of -persons pardoned from the House 
of Correction for the week ending June 14,1884, 
which was 

Placed on file. 

His Honor the Mayor presented the following 
veto message. 

Mayor's Office. ) 
Chicago, June 16, 1884. j 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen:— I return herewith without ap- 
proval an order passed June 9th, " concerning 
bridge protection gate." 



6, 1884. 



The order provides that should the gate prove 
satisfactory to the Commissioner of Public Works 
and the Committee on Harbor and Bridges; then 
the city shall adopt the same and pay therefor the 
sum of $500.00. This is vague and I think an 
improper order. It attempts byan order to com- 
mit the city to this particular style or plan of 
gate, ai d the owner of the plan may and probably 
would attempt to compel the city to erect such 
gates at all the bridges, at a cost of many thousand 
dollars, even if it should be found that some 
other model proves far better. But outside of 
this the order is illegal in that its agrees to pay 
for the one gate $500.00, for which there has been 
no appropriution made. 

I am informed by the Commissioner of Public 
Works that he has at least a dozen models of gates 
now presented to him, which he considers quite 
as good as the one under consideration, and 
several which he considers much better. To 
adopt this one which Mr. Cregier thinks inferior, 
™ ld ?e unfair to those presenting the others. 

I he city officials have paid much attention to 
the question of gates , and are of the opinion 
that all gates so far suggested, would be worse 
than the evils tbey are intended to remedy. When 
we consider the vast number of individuals 
crossing over the various bridges in the city 
during a year, estimated at fully 75,000.000, the 
accidents occuring become almost infinitesmally 
small. But few have occurred during my 
nearly thirty years residence in the city. Now 
and then an accident occurs, but so rarely that it 
ought not to alarm the public. Will the remedy 
proposed by gates orevent accidents, or will it 
not prove worse than the evil complained of by 



June 16, 1 



56 



1 1881. 



Lnduoinga greater number of accidents? Lei us 
Look into the action of a gate. A crowd of ped 
estrians are pushing towards a bridge. ,Thegate 
oloses, a large number of these pedestrians will 
attempt to press in Cronl of the gate, and there 
will be greater risk of some of them tumbling in 
from the front of the gate, than there would be 
if there were no gate to keep them from falling 
back. T<> prevent pedestrians from crowding in 
front of the gate, a policeman will be necessarj . 
Again, a line of vehicles arc pushing towards a 
bridge, the gate closes under a horses' nose. Ho 
lias to back to enable the gate to close and backs 
against the next team, and it against the next, 
t hus creating more confusion and possibly more 
accidents during a week than would occur by 

fersons falling into the river during five years, 
t is the opinion of the Commissioner of Public 
Works, and of all who have studied the question, 
that accidents caused by the gates would be vast- 
ly greater than would arise from the absence of 
gates. 

To prevent accidents from gates we would be 
forced to have policemen to keep pedestrians 
and teams back. The same policeman would be 
more effectually able to prevent accidents with- 
out the gate than with it. The accident at Polk 
street, which aroused public sentiment would 
probably not have been prevented if there had 
been a gate, for a team and carriage or wagon 
going at a high speed would break over any gate 
made light enough to work automatically or to 
be controlled by the bridge tender. 

IE Mr. Wheeler's device be a good one. he can 
erect it by a permit from the Council. I do not 
think he should have any preference over the 
dozen others who have submitted their designs 
to the department for examination. 

Cabteb H. Habbison,

The undersigned petitioners, Wm. Sturm,

& Co., of the City of Chicago, respectfully peti- 
tion your honorable body for leave or license to

site Lincoln park, in said city; your petitioners 
farther state that their circular railroad is a 
patented invention in the style of a round-about, 
that the same is harmless, noiseless and affords 
an innocent amusement to those using the same- 
your petitioners further state that they desire to 
operate the same upon an inclosed lot with a 
seven (7) foot fence around the same: your peti- 
tioners further state that they are willing to enter 
into a bond of indemnity in the sum of ten 
. thousand ($10,003) dollars to secure and protect

"people can have more light," brings up the 
question Frequently submitted to your honorable 
body, of lighting both the traffic tunnels with the 
electric light, which would prove far more satis- 
factory and cheaper than with gas for various 
reasons not necessary to enumerate here. 1 he 
attention of your honorable body is called to the 
subject of using the electric light for the tunnels, 
because of the facilities which now exist for using 
such light. The City Electrician has laid his 
conduits for wires with a view to reach the tun- 
nels. The steam plant at the new city hall is 
available for power purposes, hence with a suit- 
ableengine and electric lighting plant the tun- 
nels could be illuminated in a far more desirable 
manner than they could be with gas, even with 
"reatly increased number of jets, besides a plant 
for lighting the tunnels maybe made available 
for lighting at least a portion, if not all, of the 
new city hall. The points here briefly touched 
are in full accord with the views of the City 
Electrician, I therefore, again present the mat- 
ter for your consideration, and submit a propos- 
ition of the Western Edison Light Company 
upon the subject, meantime, unless otherwise di- 
rected, the or ler of your honorable body, to in- 
crease the number of gas jets will be carried out. 
Respectfully, 

DeWitt C. Ckegiee, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 

The following is the proposal: 

Westekn Edison Light Co., ) 
Chicago, June 18, 1884. ) 

DeWitt C. Cregier, 

Commissioner of Public Works, 
De\r Sir:— In view of the imperfect lighting 
of the LaSalle and Washington street tunnels, 
attention to which has been called by recent ac- 
tion of the City Council, we are led to make the 
following suggestions and proposal: 

We believe the cause of the imperfect lighting 
to be largely due to the constant draughts exist- 
ing in the tunnels, causing the lights to flare and 
flicker badly, thereby reducing their illummat- 
ing power, also increasing the smoke from them, 
which not. only vitiates the atmosphere of the 
tunnels, but so discolors the walls that the lights 
do not produce the full effect they ought. 

We believe if the tunnels were properly ligh- 
ted, their use would be more than quadrupled, 
thus affording needed relief to the crowded 
bridges. The city now has an investment of more 
than a million dollars in these tunnels, and 
receives therefrom a very inadequate return, 
chiefly owing to this one defect. 

We believe that the Edison system of incandes- 
cent electric lighting would meet the peculiar 
requirements of this case better than any other 
system of artificial lighting known, as the light is 
absolutely pure and steady, giving off no smoke, 
and unaffected by draughts or by moisture, and 
is simple and economical in operation. 

A plant could be placed in the new city hall 
builoing, that would easily light both of these 
tunnels, and as the light w T ould have to run con- 
tinuously, day and night, the plant should be a 
double one, with reserve capacity for an emer- 
gency, but this reserve power could be utlized 
without additional cos; for plant, by lighting the 
coridors and principal rooms in the City Hail 
building, during such hours of the day or night, 
as light then would be needed. We therefore 
submit the following proposal: 

We will install in the new City Hall building, 
an Edison electric light plant, with capacity 



enough to fully and sufficiently light both of said 
tunnels, and a reserve capacity equal to that, 
required in the t unnels, and connect the same by 
;i complete system of wiring, through conduits 
belonging to the city, with the said tunnels. 

We will make this installation at our own risk 
and cost, guaranteeing that by its use the tunnels 
can be lighted thoroughly, and to the satisfac- 
tion of yourself or such other officer or depart- 
ment of the city goverment, as may bo appoint- 
ed to inspect and pass upon the same; that the 
lighting shall be ample and economical. 

We will give you sufficient time to thoroughly 
inspect and prove the same, and if it is not found 
fully up to our guarantees in every particular, 
then we will remove the plant without expense 
to the city. 

If, however, the light should be found to meet 
the city's needs, we will sell the plant to the city, 
at such price as shall be agreed upon when the 
contract is entered into, after detailed plans of 
the machinery proposed to be furnished shall 
have been submitted to and approved by your 
department. 

If it would ba an 1 : aid in a financial way, we 
will further agree to wait for the pay for the 
plant, until the next-ar nual appropriation shall 
have been made, but would expect that the plant 
should be' inspected, and either accepted or re- 
jected by the city within a reasonable time, say 
thirty days after its completion and successful 
operation. 

Respectfully Yours, 
Western Edison Light Company, 
Per John. M. Clark, 

Vice President.

His Honor the Mayor to cut the wires of the 
Mutual Union Telegraph Company, also a Com- 
munication from Mr. R. C. Clowry, General 



Superintendent of the Western Union Telegraph 
Company, addressed to his Honor the Mayor, 
asking for delay in the matter, which was 

Published and placed on file. 

The following is the report: 

Mayor's Office, ? 
Chicago, July 25, 1884. J 
To the honorable members of the City Council: 

Gentlemen:— At your last meeting you passed 
an order directing me to cut the wires of the 
Mutual Union Telegraph Company; since then I 
^ ve endeavored, but have been unable to find 
Mr. K. C. Clowry,. the general superintendent of 
the company, before my departure for the coun- 
try, but he has in my absence forwarded me a 
letter m reference to the matter in question. 
1 hat letter I have the honor to herewith submit 
and I respectfully ask that it may be read, so that 
you may, if you deem it expedient, give me 
further instructions in view of the situation 
outlined in the communication, or otherwise 
modify your order as you may deem best. 
Yours respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Western Union Telegraph Co. ) 

Chicago, July 21, 1884. ) 
Hon. C. H. Harrison, Mayor, City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir:— I had the pleasure of calling at 
your office twice day before yesterday and once 
yesderday afternoon, but found you absent. I 



Julj 28, 1

was afterwards informed 1 li.it you had left the 
oita t<> return Friday or Saturday, lam com- 
pelled to leave city to-day to hi- absent tint il 
Tuesday or Wednesday and hope that you will 
lake no action until 1 return. 

I bad a conversation with Mr. Winston, the 
attorney of tin; city; and our attorney, Mr. Nor- 
man Williams, Informed mo that he met both 
yourself and Mr. Winston. 

1 will request that this letter he regarded as in- 
formal, that is, a statement such as 1 would have 
made to you in person, and not to be used for 
publication. 

In regard to the rights of the Mutual Union 
Telegraph Company 1 will say, that the subject 
is now in the hands of our attorney,- and 1 have 
no doubt but thai Mr. Williams gave you Ids 
Mews fully in regard thereto. 

Several weeks ago an application was made on 
behalf of the Mutual Union Telegraph Company 
for a permit to put down a trunk line of wires 
from our main office, on the corner of Washing- 
ton and LaSalle streets to the new Board of Trade 
building. This permit was promptly granted, 
but we have been somewhat delayed in reference 
to the work; this delay being, to a great extent, 
unavoidable as I will explain. Our company is 
now placing wires underground in New York 
from Twenty-third street to Broad street, pipes 
to be placed under Broadway, and a- number of 
changes have been made in the plans since the 
work was begun. ■ Some of the material that was 
intended to be used in this underground system 
has been discarded and other material substituted 
The work is approaching completion and we are 
anxious to profit by our experience in New York, 
before putting wires underground in Chicago. 
This alone has caused the delay here. I have 
been in constant communication with the gen- 
eral manager in New York in reference to this 
subject and he has assured me no later than clay 
before yesterday that material could be sent to us 
to prosecute the work in Chicago without unnec- 
essary delay. It should be taken into considera- 
tion that the work done by the Western Union 
Company must be performed in a first-class 
manner. We cannot afford to make experiments, 
and I regret to say that a great deal of the under- 
ground work I have seen throughout the country- 
is an experiment, and, in my opinion, will not 
give satisfaction for any length of time. We 
expect to put down about 300 wires between our 
main office and the new Board of Trade building. 

I have recently instructed our district superin- 
tendent here, Mr. P. H. Tubbs, to make appli- 
cation on behalf of the Mutual Union Telegraph 
Company for another permit to lay a trunk line 
of wires from our main office to some point in 
the southern boundary of the city, and he will 
file the application as soon as practicable. 

The Western Union Company is, as you know, 
a permanent, progressive corporation, and will 
move as rapidly as possible in the direction of 
establishing permanent telegraph facilities in 
the City of Chicago which will be satisfactory to 
the people and the city government. 

A very large portion of the wires used in this 
city by the various telegraph and telephone com- 
panies cannot be successfully operated under- 
ground, as you are no doubt well aware. 

I regret very much that we were not allowed 
to continue to put up aerial cables, which could, 
I think, have been done to the satisfaction of the 
city. In my opinion, the use of these cables 
w-ould. to a great extent, solve the problem of 
city telegraph facilities, and it is only a question 
of time when we will have to adopt this system 
generally. 

Some of our important lines are operated upon 
Mutual Union circuits, and it would be a great 
hardship, especially to business men of this city 
to interrupt the working of these wires. I trust, 
therefore, that no further action will be taken 



towards cutting these wires until the position of 
the telegraph company in the premises is fully 
considered. 

Very respectfully, 

B. C. Clowhy, 

General Superintendent, 

The Clerk presented a report from J. P. Bar- 
rett, Superintendent of the City Telegraph, rela- 
tive to an order passed by your honorable body, 
July. 21, 1884, concerning the stringing of cables 
on Washington, State and Madison streets and 
Wabash avenue, by the Baltimore and Ohio Tele- 
graph Company, which was 

Placed on file. 

His Honor the Mayor presented the following 
veto message: 

Mayor's Office. ) 
Chicago, July 28, 1881. $ 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — I return herewith without 
approval, an order passed July 21st, ordering a 
I chair purchased by Justice Foote to be paid for 
by the city. The matter is a small one, but it has • 
been my endeavor to have outlays of this character 
to be made with the concurrence of the Comptrol- 
ler, the financial officer of the municipality. He 
refused to pay for this chair because he thought 
it an extravagant one. I disapprove the order 
because Justice Foote should not have purchased 
such chair without the approval of the Comptrol- 
ler. If he has the right to make such purchase 
at eighteen dollars, he might with equal pro- 
priety order a new and more elegant throne at 
a cost of one hundred dollars. All city employes 
know the rules which I have endeavored to have : 
enforced on those matters. A justice on the 
bench should be the last one to violate them. 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. [

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled : 

Your petitioners George E. Bliss and C. L. 
Bonney, of Lawndale, in Chicago, Cook County, 
Illinois, in their OAvn behalf, and on behalf of a 
large number of citizens of said Lawndale, re- 
spectfully represent: 

That on or about the 7th day of February, A. D. 
1881, an ordinance was passed by your honorable 
body, granting .permission to the Chicago West 
Division Railway Company to construct, main- 
tain and operate an extension of the Ogden av- 
enue line of street cars, from Western avenue to 
the western limits of Chicago; said permission 
to extend, being conditioned by an agreement on 
the part of said Company, that- said extension 
should be in actual operation, from Western av- 
enue to the western line of Douglas park, on or 
before the 1st day of June, 1881, and from the 
western line of Douglas park to Lawndale, as 
soon as the same could be constructed, operated 
and kept in repair without actual loss. 

That for a long time past the amount of travel 
between Lawndale and the business portion of 
this city has been and is now sufficient to war- 
rant the construction and operation of said ex- 
tension as required in and by said ordinance and 
agreement. 

That the construction, operation and repair of 
said extension for a long time might have been, 
and still can be without actual loss. 

The said Company has frequently been notified 
and requested to construct and operate said ex- 
tension as required in and by said ordinance and 
agreement, but that it has nevertheless refused 
and neglected to do so, much to the inconvenience 
and loss on the part of the citizens of said Lawn- 
dale. 

Your petitioners therefore pray that a commit- 
tee may be appointed to inquire and report as 
follows: 

Fibst. As to the amount of travel between said 
Lawndale and business portion of said city; and 
what demand or necessity, if any, there is or has 
been for the construction and operation of said 
extension. 

I Second. What would be the probable cost of 
said construction, operation and repair. 
Thikd. If the amount of patronage said exten- 
j sion would have received was not sufficient to 
warrant the construction and operation of said. 
I extension. 

Foueth. If the construction, operation and re- 
pair of said extension can be without actual 
loss. 

Ftfth. If said company has not been repeated- 
ly notified and requested to construct and oper- 
ate said extension. 

Sixth, If said company has not wholly failed 
and neglected so to do. 

Seventh. If said company in and by their fail- 
ure and neglect to construct and operate said 
•extension have not thereby forfeited all right, 
franchise and privilege conferred in and by said 
ordinance. 

Eighth. If said ordinance should not now be 
repealed and annulled. 

Ninth. The intervals at which said company 
should have run its cars between said Lawndale, 
and the business portion of said city for the 
proper accommodation of the residents of said 
Lawndale. 

And your petitioners further pray that upon 
the report of said committee, said ordinance may 
be repealed, and the further rights of said com- 
pany, under said ordinance declared forfeited. 

And your petitioners apend hereto a copy of a 
notice recently served on said company. 

And this your petitioners will ever pray. 

GeOEGE E. BLISS, 

Chas. L. Bonney.

excessive. For the first seven months of the year 
it is to receive $1.65 per thousand cubic feet, that 
being last year's rate, and the price of $1.00 per 
thousand feet is confined to the remaining five 
months of the year. It is well known that since 
last years contract was made, this company has 
very largely reduced the price of gas to its con- 
sumers and is furnishing the same, in quantities 
however small, at the rate of one dollar per 
thousand feet. The city consuming an enormous 
quantity, has always been able to secure its gas nt 
a rate considerably below the price at which it 
was sold to individuals. If it cannot continue to 
do so % I know of no reason why it should be com- 
pelled to pay more than any other consumer. 
That the company can afford to sell to the city at 
the same rates as to others is evidenced by 'the 
proposition of March 1, 1884, in which the com- 
pany offered to supply the north and south div- 
isions of the city with gas at the rate of one 
dollar for thousand cubic feet. It is, however, 
contended by the company that the city having 
used the company's gas to the date, is liable to 
pay for the same at last year's rates. With this 
proposition I cannot concur The city is preven- 
ted by its charter from entering into a contract 
of this kind extending beyond a year and the con- 
tract of 1883 expired by its terms, and by law, 
with the thirty-first day of December, 1883. It 
then became a thing of the past and nothing 
could be predicated from its terms or conditions 
as to gas to be thereafter furnished. The com- 
pany continuing to furnish gas after December 
31, 1883, did so at its own risk. Either there was 
no liability upon the city, in the absence of any 



Auk. 1,J

authoritative action on the part of the Council 
or the proper dffloers, or else the oompany be- 
oame entitled to receive the ''air market value of 
the gas. The prices of last year's oontraot furnish 
no criterion Tor this year's figures, ir lasl year's 
oontraot had oalled for seventy-five cents per 
thousand tYnt and the price of gas had risenin- 
Btead of fallen, the oompany would hardly have 
appeared before you with the claim that the 
figures of last, year must govern in the absence of 
a oontraot. Its a poor rule that won't work both 
ways, and it is oer tain that if the city is liable 
upon an implied contract for the gas already 
consumed, il Lsupoa the basis, not of lastyear's 
oontraot, but of what the gas is really worth. 
And Lnasmuoh as it has boon all the year furnish- 
ing gas to its other consumers at one dollar, 
it would find great difficulty in obtaining a 
dollar and sixty-fivs cents from the city treasury. 
Its off ir of March!, to supply the gas for one 
dollar per thousand for the entire year is evi- 
dence, satisfactory enough to me, that the gas is 
not worth more than that sum. With my posit- 
ion on this question the Law Department thor- 
oughly concurs. 

Second. The price to be paid the company for 
lighting and cleaning the lamps is, in my judg- 
ment, too large. At the rate of one and one-half 
cents per lamp, per day, it would aggregate, I 
am informed, upwards of thirty-two thousand 
dollars (.1632,000) and this is, upon its- face, ex- 
cessive and must necessarily include a large 
profit. 

Third. The offer of the company contemp- 
lates that the time table for lighting the lamps 
and the consumption of gas per hour shall be 
changed, as was done in the case of the west side 
a short time ago. The effect of this is to consider- 
ably extend the time during which the lamps are 
to be lighted, to add one fifth to the consumption 
per hour, and consequently to consume a greater 
amount of gas and incur larger bills. 1 have 
noticed as a result of changing the time table on 
the west side that the lamps are often kept burn- 
ing in bright moonlight, when wholly unneces- 
sary and useless, This entails a great waste of 
money and I understood at the time that the table 
was to be changed, in the case of the west side 
company, I would certainly have called your 
attention to the matter . It is true, that, in the 
business portion of the city, among the tail build- 
ings, the moonlight is of little or no avail and the 
gas should always be burned at night; but this 
does not apply to the residence portion of the 
north and south sides. In theintrest of economy 
and to avoid a waste of the people's money, I 
am opposed to incurring a useless expense for 
gas which is not needed, and to paying more for 
the same than is paid by other consumers.

Gentlemen:— I herewith return, without my 
approval, an order of the Council, passed Sep- 



tember 1, 1884, which reads as follows, to wit: 
"■Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public 
" Works advertise for proposals for improve- 
" ment of Warren avenue from Ogden avenue to 
'* Leavitt street, and let the work to the lowest 
" responsible bidder, the contractors to wait 
"for their pay until the assessments for such 
"work are collected," and assign therefor the 
following reasons: 

First. A large majority of the property own- 
ers, owning more than half of the frontage along 
the line of the proposed improvement, are op- 
pose to asphalt pavement, and it is no more 
than right that those who must pay for the im- 
provement should have something to say about 
the character of the same. A majority of feet 
front on said street is in favor of cedar blocks. 
The probable reason why this fact did not in- 
fluence your vote, was because the whole matter of 
the improvement of this street had by order of the 
Council been referred to the Committee on 
Streets and Alleys for West Division, on August 
4. 1834. and which reference you had probably 
forgotten. 

Second. Originally the Council passed an 
order requiring this street to be paved with cedar 
blocks, upon wiiich an assessment was made and 
confirmed by the Court. This was at the instance 
of a majority of feet frontage. Later, by order 
of the Council, asphalt was substituted for cedar 
block, but not at instance of a majority, as the 
accompanying petitions will show. This makes 
the experiment of proceeding dangerous, as it 
will cause litigation over the assessment, and 
cost and expense to the city. 

Third. By order of the Council, passed August

4, lss|. u|>oii u communication from ( 'ommiss- 
ioner or Public Works and tin- City Attorney, 

the whole mailer was referred to your Commit- 
tee on Btreetfl and Alleys, West, Division, and 
said Committee lias not yet reported thereon. 
No doubt yon had Forgotten the fact when the 

above order was passed. 

I attach a Bohedule and certain petitions 
about the matter which I have not verified, but 
which should be looked into by your Committee 
and l therefore hope yon may reconsider your 
aci em and refer the whole matter to your Com- 
mittee so that no misunderstanding may exist, 
and no fighting of assessment occur. 

Respectfully, 

Carter H. Harrison, 
Mayor. 

Statement. 
Whole number of feet frontage on 

Warren avenue 7,532 feet. 

Less Union Park and Brown school 

frontage 705 feet. 

Actual f rontage subject to assessm'nt, 6,K27 feet. 

One-half of this frontage is 3,413% feet. 

There was originally signed for as- 
phalt 3 f 138& 

Which included the Brown school 

frontage of 266 

Leaving actually signing for asphalt, 2,873Li 
Which is less than half of the net 

street frontage by 54014 feet. 

Of the balance there was counted a considerable 
number feet which will not be assessed for the 
improvement. The number of feet frontage 
subject to the assessment, which actually oppose 
asphalt pavement, and by the accompanying pet- 
itions, have signed against it, is 4,157^ feet and 
none of this includes any public property, but 
does include about 700 feet of those having prev- 
iously signed for asphalt which they now re- 
pudiate.

which the order was passed.

' PETITION. 

To the Honorable the Mayor and Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

The undersigned have been appointed a com- 
mittee by the President and Board of Trustee! 
of the Village of Jefferson, to ascertain upon 
what terms and conditions (if any), your honor! 
able body would grant to the said Village of J off. 
erson, a supply of lake w iter through the Iwater- . 
works and mains of the City of Chicago. J 

By reason of the great increase in buildings in- 
the southeastern portion of said village, to-wit: 
in sections 25 and 35 in said village, the danger! 
from conflagrations has become alarming, not . 
only to that portion of the village, but also to 
the adjoining portions of the city, and a supply 
of water is imperatively demanded by the inter- 
ests of both the city and the village. It is there- I 
fore respectfully suggested to your honorable ■ 
body, that the Village of Jefferson construct and 
lay all the main and supply pipes required, with- 
out any expense to the city, and that y^ur honor- 
able body may give permission to connect such 
pipes with the water mams of the City of Chi- 
cago for a supply of water in said two sections, I 
upon such terms and subject to such conditions I 
and provisions as to your honorable body may 
seem just and proper. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. Dated 
December 3, 1833.

To the Chairman and Committee on Fire and | 
Water, City Council: 

Gentlemen: In reply to the petition of the 
Village of Jefferson for a supply of water, etc., 
referred to the undersigned for information, I 
have to report that I appeared before your hon- 
orable committee and" gave such information 
upon the subject as I was able and can only 
reiterate what I then stated, to-wit: That I know 
of no practical objection to granting the prayer 
of the petitioners, as I understand there are but 
8,00J people in the village, and if the entire num- 
ber were supplied with water at the rate of our 
own city daily per capita consumption, it would 
require only about three-fourths of a million 
gallons. The quantity of pipe to belaid, I am 
informed, will not exceed five miles. The num- 
ber of fire hydrants due to this length of pipe 
should not exceed sixty. Thene data compared 
with the city's annual extension of pipe and 
daily increased consumption of water is quite in- 
significant, since from eighteen to twenty-five 
miles of pipe are laid in the course of a year, and 
the daily variation in the consumption of water 
sometimes reaches from one to three million 
gallons. Therefore, reviewing the proposition 
from a mere practical standpoint, and assuming 
that the water used is to be paid for at the same 
rates as city consumers pay, there does not ap- 
pear to me to be any objection to the project, 
especially as the city is now increasing its supply 
30,000,000 per day. and the machinery for this 
purpose will be in operation by the opening of 
warm weather. 

The expediency of the proposed departure and 
the legal aspects of the matter are questions for

others to decide, but should it be deemed proper 
to grant the request, there are marjy points of 
importance in connection with the size of the 
pipes, the manner of laying them, the location 
and number of hydrants and stop- valves, in 
which the city would be largely interested in case 
of a certain contingency, also the mode of meas- 
uring the water used, and the general conditions 
under which it shall be supplied, are matters 
which should be carefully considered and deter- 
mined and explicitly set forth. 

Respectfully, 

DeWitt C. Ckegiek, 
Commissioner of Public Works,

Your Committee on Police to whom was re-

thousand dollars, ($100,000.00) from the saloon 
license fund, for the purpose of increasing the 
police force of the City of Chicago, having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to report: 
± hat we recommend the passage of an accom- 
panying ordinance, appropriating one hundred 
thousand dollars for the purpose of increasing 
the police force of the City of Chicago, in accord- 
ance with the opinion of the Corporation Coun- 
sel herewith submitted.

John Riordan, ^Jsg., Chairman Committee on 
Police: 

Dear Sir^Your Committee has referred to

[ 1 881 1 



hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) Erom the 
saloon License tund Eor the purpose oi increasing 

(,ht> police force of the city. 

The necessity of iin increase in the Dumber 01 
polioe seems to be conceded by all. Lt has been 
repeatedly claimed in the reports oi tnedepart- 
ment and Beems never to have been so keenly celt 
as at present, when the demands upon the force 
Erom fairs, shows, exhibitions and the numerous 

political gatherings are «> Kreat that they Oan, 
with the utmost difficulty, bo met rheapproacb, 
,,„«,, of c«»ld weather with its usual concomitant 
of tramps hocking to the city and the dangers 
from street assaults, calls For an increase oi 
police to oroperly protect the property, persons 
and lives of our oitizens. That the city has in t he 
past been able to do as well as it has, wit h fine 
limited force at its disposal, is a matter of much 
gratification and is doubtless due to efficient 
management and the use of the patrol system. 

The demand for an increase was aoknowlegod 
and partl y met by the Council appropriating last 
spring $75,000 for 150 additional patrolmen the 
Mavor was compelled, against his wishes, to veto 
the'item, in order to bring the appropriation bill 
within the limit fixed by law. Tho amoun., ot 
money to be derived from saloon licenses was at 
that time an unknown quantity and upon it no 
definite calculations could be based. It has since 
become evident that the sum to be received by the 
city from this source will far exceed the esti- 
mate of the finance department and of the City 
Council. From this fund it is now sought, by 
the order before me, to appropriate $100,000 tor 
the purpose mentioned. -k 

While I concur in the general, sentiment that 
the appropriation desired is greatly needed, 1 
am of the opinion that it cannot, under the law, 
be made at this time. 

By Section 2, Article VII, of the City Charter, 
the Council is required, prior to April 1, to pass 
the annual appropriation bill, in which must be 
included the amounts "necessary to defray all 
" necessarv expenses and liabilities of such cor- 
"poration." The legislature has further provi- 
ded that, "no further appropriations shall be 
" made at any other time within such fiscal year, 
" unless the proposition to make each appropria- 
tion has been first sanctioned by a majority of 
" the legal voters of such city or village, either 
"by a petition signed by them, or at a general or 
" special election duly called therefore. 

This language is clear and unmistakable. He- 
fore the additional appropriation can be made it 
must be sanctioned by the voters of the muni- 
cipality. The only exception, provided by the 
charter, to this rule is contained m section 3 ot the 
same article, as follows: "Nothing; herein con- 
tained shall prevent the City Council or board ot 
"trustees from ordering, by a two tnirds vote, 
" any improvement, the necessity of which is 
" caused by any casualty or accident happening 
" after such annual appropriation is made. 

This has been construed to cover appropria- 
tions in case of an epidemic of small-pox or an 
expected visit of cholera and even to the case ot 
appropriations for the new city hall or to bridges 
necessitated by accidents happening after the pas- 
sage of the annual bill. But it cannot be extend- 
ed^ any further. It will not cover an appropria- 
tion for additional police, the necessity for 
which was f orseen when the annual ordinance 
was passed. Such an appropriation is not called 
for by "any casualty or accident happening after 
such annual appropriation is made." It is there- 
fore not within the law. A misapprehension 
seemed to exist with some who suppose that the 
additional appropriation may be made upon an 
" emergency," and that the Council is the judge 
of what is an emergency. But there is no such 
term used in the charter. There must be a "casu- 
alty or "accident," happening after the passage 
of the annual bill and I, by no means understand 
that the Council has the discretionary power to 
say that a casualty or accident has occurred when 
in fact, there has been none. 



I therefore, recommend that the order he placed 
onfile, as unauthorized by the City Charter. As 
the matter Ls deemed of considerable importance, 
I will go further and, at the request of the Police 
Department , indicate a method by which the ap- 
propriation, if desired and ueeded, may Lawfully 
be made. It is, in brief, that the consent oi the 
people shall first be obtained. As pointed out by 
the seotion of the charter quoted from above, an 
appropriation may be made, after the first quar- 
ter of the municipal year, if sanctioned by a ma- 
jority of Iho legal voters of the city. Three me- 
thod's are pointed out by which this consent may 

be had. The method of obtaining a petition of a 
majority of the voters of this metropolis is open 
to objections; as to the vast labor required, and 
the uncertainty as to the genuineness of the signa- 
tures and a number of difficult legal questions. A 
special election might be called bat this would 
be a matter of great expense and there could 
hardly be obtained, in this mode, a full and fair 
expression of the will of the people. There is ap- 
proaching, however, an election, which will call 
out the full vote of the city. The election to be 
held in November is a general one and the vote 
to be then cast will be presum ad to be the ex- 
pression of all the legal voters of the city. 
The People vs. Garner. 47 111., 246. 
Melvin vs. Lisenby, 72 ill., 64. 
At this time there may be submitted to the 
people the question whether the Council may ap- 
propriate a part of the funds derived from saloon 
licenses towards the increase of the police force. 

At that period of the year the necessity for an 
increase will be best appreciated. . . 

Should the people sanction the appropriation, 
the Council is then authorized to appropriate the 
amount voted for that purpose. It is to be noted 
that the Council must first pass a proper order 
fixing the amount of the appropriation to be sub- 
mitted for aDproval at the polls, the County Clerk 
must give due notice and all the other require- 
ments of the statues must be observed. I am not 
aware that such a question has ever been submit- 
ted to the voters of the city since the adoption of 
the n3W charter although similar appropriations 
for state purposes have been voted upon, and 
great care must be exercised in fully complying 
with the law. If the Council should see fit to 
pursue this method and will designate the amount 
to be voted upon, the proper papers can be drawn 
by this department. 
I have the honor to be, 

Very respectfully, 
* ' F. S. Winston, Jr., 

Corporation Counsel. j

The following is the communication : 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, September 29, 1884. J 
To the honorable City Council : 

Gentlemen: I herewith submit for your con- 
sideration, a communication from the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works, relative to the water 
supply of this city. 

Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Department of Public Works, ) 
Commissioner's Office, > 
Chicago, Sept 29, 1884. ) 
To Hon. C. H. Harrison, Mayor of Chicago: 

Dear Sir: In response to your inquiry of 
some two weeks ago, as to the capacity of water 
tunnels, now that the two additional engines are 
in operation at west pumping station, I have to 
say, as you are aware, there are two independent 
tunnels, one five (5) feet in diameter, extending 
from lake crib to north pumping works, and one 
seven (7) feet in diameter, extending trom same 
point in the lake to west pumping station. 

The capacity of these tunnels to supply 
water is limited by their relative con- 
nection to the several pumping wells. The 
available capacity of the tunnels is therefore, 



Sept. 29, 1 



156 



| 1HH4. 



luii 150,000,000 gallons per twenty-jour hours. 
At, this rate of How. the water in the wells at 
north works would be about ten Eeet below the 
Level ofcthe water at the erib, and at the west 
works about seventeen Feet below. These re- 
spective points marks a stage of water as low as 
it would be practicable to operate Che pumps 
under ordinary conditions, while in case of a low 
stage of. water Ln the lake, or obstructions from 
anchor or drift Lee, or both, thewaterin pufap 
wells would be too low to utilize the quantity 

thai would How under normal conditions. Past 
experience warrants the belief that, the danger 
of obstructing tho inlets at- tlio crib increases in 
proportion to the quantity of water flowing 
through them. 

The conditions hero recited, show the available 
capacity of the tunnels to be about 150,000^000 
gallons. Tho means of utilizing this quantity: 
We have ten (10) pumping engines, with a maxi- 
mum aggregate capacity of 134,000,000 gallons. 
This quantity may and should be increased to 
150.000,000 gallons daily, by tho substitution of 
two now engines for the two old engines at north 
works. When this is done no further extensions 
of the present pumping plant is practicable. 

The demands of the city at times during the 
present year has reached nearly 10O,0UO,()00 gallons 
per day, and for certain periods during tho d;w, 
the rate of pumping has exceeded 100,000.000 gal- 
lons per day. It appears, therefore, that the re- 
serve capacity of both the tunnels, and the pump- 
ing machinery is such as to leave but a small 
margin to cover stoppages of machinery for re- 
pairs and other probable contingencies. 

I submit herewith a profile delineating graph- 
ically the relative means of supply, past and 
present. 

Very respectfully, 

DeWitt C. Cregier, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 



RESOLUTION. 

Whebeas, The character of the water supply 
of our city, as regards both quality and quantity 
is of the highest importance to the welfare of the 
entire community, and 

Whereas. These two elements are essential 
to the health and domestic comforts of our cit- 
izens; to the prosperity of our manufacturing 
interests, and the preservation of property 
against the ravages of fire, and 

Whereas, The experience of the past thirty 
years in our city clearly demonstrates that the 
demand for water has frequently been in ad- 
vance of the facilities to supply the same, and 

Whereas, At the present period, although 
the quality of the water supply to our citizens is 
unobjectionable, and ; the quantity in the main* 
ample to meet legitimate demands nevertheless 
the rapid and peculiar growth of our city; the 
large annual extension of the pipe system and 
therefor consequent necessity for increasing the 
means of supply commensurate therewith, should 
admonish the authorities to take early steps to 
supplement the present too limited margin of 
capacity in order to meet the future demands 
upon this important and indispensable branch 
of the public service, therefore be it 

Resolved, That His Honor the Mayor, the 
Commissioner of Public Works and the City 
Comptroller, be and they are hereby appointed a 
committee, with instructions to fully consider 
the subject herein embodied and report their 
views and recommendations to this Council at as 
early a date as may be practicable, and be it 
further 

Resolved, That said committee are hereby 
authorized to employ such means and methods 
for the object in view as they may deem for the 
best interests of the city.

Of the Committee on Streets and Alleys. S. D. 

Dear Sir:— Your Committee has referred to me, 
for an opinion, the draft of an ordinance provid- 
ing for the cession by the city to the South Park 
Commissioners, of that part of Michigan avenue 
lying between the south line of Thirty-fifth and 
the centre line of Thirty-ninth streets. It is ac- 
companied by a petition of the property owners 
and by a certified copy of an ordinance passed by 
the Board of Trustees of the town of Hyde Park 
on the 26th day of July, 1884, granting to the Park 
Commissioners that part of Michigan avenue 



Oct 8, 1

I 1H84.; 



Lying between Thirty-ninth street and Fifty-fifth 
street. <>r Garfield boulevard. The ordinance 
submitted to me Eor an opinion, after reciting 
bhe aol "i the legislature of April 9, L879, the 
passage of the ordinance by the Eyde Park au- 
thorities and the petition 01 the property owners, 
proceeds tograntthe consent of the citytothe 
Commissioners taking Michigan avenue, between 
Thirty-fifth and Thirty-ninth streets, 'for the 
"purpose of connecting the city of Chic&goat 
" the intersection of Michigan avenue and Thirty- 
fifth street with said Garfield boulevard.'' 

The question to be considered is whether the 
city, having granted to fche Park Commissioners 
certain streets to form a connection with the 
South Park, can nowgive its consent to a connec- 
tion being made between tha city and Garfield 
boulevard. Upon the matter being presented to 
me some time since, 1 held that tliere was no au- 
thority, under the statute, for tho city and the 
Park Commissioners to make two distinct drive- 
ways both for the purpose of connecting the city 
and the South Park. The question now comes 
up in a somewhat different shape and bears, 
perhaps, a different legal aspect. _ 

It appears 'hat the new driveway is desired by 
the people of Lake and the Stock Yards region. 
They claim to be heavily taxed for the support of 
the South Park system with its boulevards but 
the park and the boulevards are, it is claimed, of 
but little real advantage to them. In order to go 
to and from tho city by way of the boulevards 
they are compelled to drive a long distance east 
and out of the way upon Garfield boulevard and 
through the South Park. It is, therefore, desired 
by them that Garfield boulevard may itself have 
a direct connection with the city and Michigan 
avenue boulevard so that convenient access may 
be had by a good road, with the driveway into 
the heart of the city. As the matter was first 
presented to me, there was no ordinance from 
the town of Hyde Park granting the s;reet, south 
from the city limits to Garfield boulevard but 
the naked question presented was as to the pro- 
priety or legality of granting to the Park Com- 
missioners the cul de sac of Michigan avenue, 
from Thirty-fifth street to Thirty-ninth street. 
We have now an ordinance from Hyde Park 
"■ranting the avenue from Garfield boulevard, 
north to the city limits and it remains with the 
city to say whether the use shall be ceded of the 
remaining four blocks necessary to complete the 
connection with the Michigan avenue Boulevard, 

Although the question is by no means free from 
doubt, I am inclined to hold that the ordinance 
before me is legal and may be properly passed. 
The act of April 9, 1879, provides: "That every 
Board of Park Commissioners shall have power 
" to connect any public park, boulevard or drive- 
" way under its control, with any part of any m- 
'• corporated city, town or village, by selecting 
" and taken any connecting street or streets or 
" parts thereof ," etc. 

It is true, the act further provides that, such 
" connection or improvement shall embrace only 
" such street or streets as are necessary to form 
one continuous improvement." This, I under- 
stand, prevents the park from taking and the 
city f rom granting not only disconnected streets 
but also forbids the taking of more than one 
route to any particular park or boulevard. 

The City have ceded Michigan avenue to 
Thirty-fifth street and Thirty-fifth street, from 
Michigan avenue to Grand Boulevard, for the 
purpose of forming a connection between the 
city and the South Park, there is no longer any 
power to take other of the city's streets to form 
another connection between the city and park. 
I would go further and say that I do not believe 
there is any power now to connect the city, by 
other streets, with Drexel or any other boulevard 
leading directly to the park. 

But the question presents itself iu a somewhat 
different way when it is inquired whether there 
may not be a driveway from the city to a boule- 
vard which, it is true, runs into South Park btu, 



also leads to the town of Lake and is intended as 
;i connection between the South Park and Hut 
west Hide par kn. The legislature has authorize! 
driveways from the city not only to parks but 
also to boulevards, and unless the driveway 
which connects with a boulevard is but a subteifc 
fuge to obtain two different driveways into tho 
park itself, L am inclined to believe that a boule- 
vard, as well as a park, maybe connected with 
the city by a driveway. For illustration, it would 
be illegal to gran I to the West Park Commission! 
ers two driveways, both leading to Humboldt 
Park; but il would be proper for them to con 
struct two separate diiveways, one to Humboldt, 
and one to Garfield Park, although the two parks 
are connected, a part of oik; system. So in this IJ 
Case,, there may not be two boulevards of fhel 
city's streets, bot h for the purpose of connecting! 
the city and t he Sout h • Park; but it would seeQj 
within the letter of the statute to allow one 
boulevard connecting the city with the park andffl 
another to connect the city with Garfield boule-J 
vard, for the use and benefit of those living urtM 
doing business in the region southwest of the,l 
city. The question is a close one, but I am in- 1 
clined to think this the better reading of the stat-i 
ute. There is a consideration in the matter! 
which has some weight with me: If the petit ion' 
of the property owners in the premises is denied, 
on the ground that the proposed action would be] 
illegal, they are entirely without remedy in the! 
matter, for no court could compel the passage oil 
the ordinance, if, on the other hand the ordinal 
ance is passed, its legality may be at once tested!] 
in the courts and those who are opposed to it, ill 
there be any, may have it set aside if the above be I 
not the true construction of the statute. In suchi 
case the street would again be under the city's li 
control. •f] 
If the Council should pass the ordinance, it re4J 
mains for the Park Commissioners to say! 
whether they will expend the park funds MM 
maintaining the new driveway after it shall have]; 
been constructed at the expense of the property™ 
owners petitioning for this ordinance. In case 
they do not accept the ordinance within six] 
months after its passage the street reverts to theij 
city. Respectfully yours, 

F. S. Winston, Jr., 

Corporation Counsel. I
